Friendly service, great food!

We had lunch here twice in two days. Wonderful ambience, delicious food, and incredible bar. Their version of a Bloody Mary is killer. Outside seating was warm and heated on this chilly February day. Highly recommended for adult lunch.

Had a wonderful lunch at the Waterfront today. Delicious food in a really neat outdoor setting. The prices were fair and our waitress was great. The fish tacos are the best I have eaten since Cancun. Very popular, so reservations are a good idea, especially for dinner. Lunch is served from 11:00 'til 4:30.

We go to this establishment about every 6 months. We love to sit outside with the view of the bay and the pier. Actually, this was a birthday celebration, and overall everything was enjoyable. I had the Moqueca which is a Brazilian Stew of Shrimp, clams and fresh fish in a lime coconut sauce with cilantro marinated basmati rice. This... More

We drove up here from Siesta Key to get away from the crowds and had a delightful lunch here. Their seafood was fresh and well prepared, and it was relaxing to sit outside and see the water in the distance.

Each year we go to Waterfront (5 years now). Always good food. Last year they did not have the chicken waffle dish my sister in law loves so we were excited to see it on the Internet menu today. Unfortunately they hadn't changed their internet menu and it's still not on the menu. However we all really enjoyed our meals... More

This was our second year eating at the Waterfront. Stays consistent, with their quality and their service. We have enjoyed eating here several times for a couple of years. The chef does a fantastic job. Love inside and outside dining. Lunch or Dinner. On the list for our next trip in that area.

After two trips to AMI, we agree that the Waterfront Restaurant is the best on the island. It has wonderful seafood dishes especially grouper. We took the restaurant tour using TripAdvisor's recommendations and the Waterfront did not disappoint us. Also, we loved the location near the Anna Maria Island Wharf and Pine Street shops.

We went here for dinner and it was lovely for both inside and outside dining. Outside faces the bay and provides a lovely setting although somewhat obscured by the car parking along the beach. Overall the food and service are both very good and we had an enjoyable but not necessarily memorable meal. Wine and beer are reasonably priced and... More

I have eaten at this restaurant twice. The first time I thought it was so-so. This time, however, the food was excellent and my mouth is watering thinking about our next trip to the beach. I had the scallops which were perfectly prepared. My husband enjoyed the seafood pasta tremendously. "Waterfront" is a bit misleading for a name because the... More
